MASSERIA DELLE PECORE
Elegant Masseria with 5 separate master suites and a private swimming pool in Specchia, one of the most enchanting villages in Salento. The renovation and furnishing project was intended to recover the value of the masseria while respecting its historical value; the original volumes of the interiors, characterized by walls and vaults made of Salento tuff, have been restored. The materials used (trimmed stone, wood, glass and steel) speak the language of the Apulian farms construction tradition and seek a contrasting and fertile dialogue with the contemporary lexicon of furnishings and resin finishes.
